Due to a high demand of members wanting to take this course in order to take the ISELP Certification Examination we have added this module into the 2018 schedule.

This module will have a smaller maximum capacity. Please sign up ASAP as we are limiting the number of attendees.


The Hock and Crus module uses background knowledge and clinical case presentations as well as live demonstrations to explore some of the most common conditions of the hind limb that practitioners deal with in everyday practice. The module provides 20 hours of instruction and includes three hours of practice on live horses under the supervision of certified instructors.

Conditions reviewed include proximal and distal hock joint conditions including interosseus enthesopathies and collateral desmopathies, periarticular conditions such as plantar tarsal sheath syndrome and common calcanean tendinopathy as well as cranial and caudal crus conditions. Special emphasis is placed on the rehabilitation and the rational corrective shoeing of the different conditions using kinesitherapic shoes.
